“Beyonce and Solange were 9 and 4 years old and were feeding the homeless after church with turkeys and can goods cooked by the ladies in the church. They were purchased by the few members of the church every Sunday. Boy, has St Johns come a long way! My kids learned about serving others as Kids partly because of St Johns,” Tina says.
